 Neither did we! It was starting to fall over but it put sunflowers to shame.

 GWRS; it was over 7ft tall. I originally thought the plant dead and I threw it on the heap. Ever since I've been too guilty to harvest it.

Thanks to Topbird for finding this thread for me!


Plants available from Sheffield / Worksop area;


Aloe vera 


Iris Pseudacorus (about 3 - 4" inch high)


Fabrgesia cabrida (I think: dwarf bamboo)


Unknown sea holly in pots that are far too small for it so they're not looking too happy

LillyP; perhaps not seeing the vet is the best. Poor thing doesn't need more stress! If he's happy and alert than I hope it's just a tummy bug. Dogs do seem to be highly effective at clearing themselves out.



Just "harvested" my Swiss chard. I think it was getting out of hand!! That photo is one stalk.

Can anyone tell me where the plant / seed swap thread is? I have these Tesco sea hollies (exact type unknown) that have far outgrown their pots and are now struggling but I've no where to put them. Wanted to offer them up to any passing gardener before I compost them.

Oh LP it's heartbreaking when a hound is ill isn't it. Have you seen the vets yet? I hope it's just a one off event and nothing that a little chicken and rice won't solve. As someone whose dog has irritable bowel syndrome I feel for you.


We've just gotten back from a walk to the park; dogs everywhere it was brilliant to see so many playing together. Everyone was nice and friendly and relaxed. I sometimes think dog walkers have their own social community.


Now I need to clear up his lordships efforts at helping cut the hedges. He NEVER clears away the cuttings!

If it's anything like my lawn give it a few weeks and it'll be back to natural!

Panda those photographs are beautiful! Such vibrant colour.


Home from work and starting the washing mountain. If some one could explain WHY I like to save it for one day I'd be grateful! 


Pizza and salad tonight; nice and simple.

Like Dove ours sing their hearts out around 05:15 when it's light but the world hasn't really woken up yet.

Afternoon all! Sat in a nice cool coffee shop. Alas at work but you can't have everything.


I had the most wonderful meal at a Chinese restaurant in Sheffield. Gluten free with wonderful staff who were happy to find the answers to anything you asked.
